  • Designed by Claudia Q for EweKnit

    Looking for a sweater for your special little guy? Here is a circular yoke pullover, worked from the bottom up, especially for him, but also suitable for a little girl. The pattern is written in 5 sizes, with a keyhole opening in the back neck for the baby sizes.

    Techniques Used
    Must know how to knit and purl in the round, work single increases and decreases, and be comfortable working with 2 colours at one time. Will be working stranded knitting in 2 colours from charts. Duplicate stitches are worked on the knitted fabric after the knitting.

    Pattern Notes
    A yoke sweater worked in the round from the bottom up and in one piece in 5 colours with 1x1 rib edgings in 5 sizes. Two-colour stranded knitting patterns are placed in the yoke. The baby sizes have an opening in the back, so the top of the yoke is worked back and forth to create a keyhole neckline. Buttonholes are written for both sides of the band to allow for wear by either gender. Cover the left hole with the button for a boy, and the right hole for a girl, or work only the required buttonhole. Baby sizes are marked with square brackets, children’s
    sizes in curly ones. Finer details of the foxes’ eyes are worked using duplicate stitches. The sleeves are worked on a smaller-sized needle to have the same gauge as the stranded knitting.
